Allston Burr Resident Dean, Kirkland House and Assistant Dean of Harvard College
Hello Kirkland! I am excited to begin my second year in the wonderful community of Kirkland House, along with my husband, Ahmed Ragab, our daughter, Carmen and our cat, Jesse.
I was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, where I graduated with a BA in political science from Cairo University. I went on to do my Master’s and PhD in political theory and history in Paris, France at the Paris Institute for Political Studies (Sciences Po).
I’ve been at Harvard since 2007 and have been privileged enough to experience multiple facets of this wondrous place: first as a visiting fellow in the Department of Government, then as a Teaching Assistant in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and finally as a lecturer in the Department of the History of Science, where I will continue to teach, in addition to my responsibilities as the ABAD of Kirkland House....

In Kirkland, I work on housing, events, room reservations, the budget, and whatever comes my way! My favorite things about Kirkland include KDS, Conversations with Kirkland, HoCo, sophomore advising, and our truly wonderful community of Tutors, students, and staff. Outside of Kirkland, I'm a first-year PhD student at Boston College, studying Higher Education. My office is under the Kirkland archway in H-Entry. Visitors are always welcome!
Scott is responsible for the physical maintenance of the House and for improvement of all House facilities. Minor maintenance requests-such as repairs of leaky faucets, defective lights, or faulty locks-should be reported to his office. The Building Manager issues key cards and keys for all entries, suites, and House facilities. Scott is eager to help students in any way he can and welcomes questions and suggestions about Kirkland House.
